If cars aren't your thing, there are motorcycles, boats and an insane amount of collectibles.
Auction sites are good fun to browse. If you're lucky you'll come across a special car, or even a private collection made up of rare cars. This one scheduled for late November by RM Sotheby's in Italy involves what is quite possibly the coolest, biggest and most amazing car collection ever assembled. In fact, the amount of cars, motorbikes, boats and spares is so vast that the auction has to take place over three days. The auction should see worldwide interest. In fact, it definitely will. Collectors like Jay Leno should be in attendance.
The auction will take place in Italy at Fiero Milano, one of the world's largest convention centers. The cars are spread around Italy in various warehouses and are in the process of being transported to the venue. With 430 cars, 150 motorbikes, 60 boats and a plethora of spare engines, wheels, bicycles and more, it's taken some time. It makes sense then that it's being billed as the largest private collection ever to go up for sale at one auction in Europe. We'd love to know who the original owner/collector is, but that's being kept quiet. RM Sotheby's was awarded the job by the Italian government so it's either the deceased estate of a bazillionaire, an international drug dealer or a wealthy spy.
We spent ages browsing the cars that have already been listed (at no reserve) and picked out some interesting ones. There's a 1994 Bugatti EB110, a 1988 Porsche 959 Komfort, a 1992 Ferrari F40, a track-ready 1987 E30 BMW M3, a pair of 1987 Group A Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione cars, a 1972 Alpine Renault A110, a 1997 Aston Martin V8 Coupe, a 1983 Group A BMW 635 CSI, a 1983 DeTomaso Pantera, a Porsche Carrera GT, a 1992 Group N Escort Cosworth and even a 1979 Formula 2 BMW March 792 car. There are over 400 more, almost impossible to comprehend. The spare engines and wheels alone could settle a country's national debt. Time for a lottery win!
